Groundbreaking Project to Map the Redwood Genomes

Butano State Park
In the Redwood Genome Project’s first year, researchers will develop and publicly release genome sequences using a tree from the pictured Butano State Park for the coast redwood genome and a tree from Sequoia National Park for the giant sequoia genome.
Save the Redwoods League is leading pioneering research to fully sequence the coast redwood and giant sequoia genomes. The genome sequences and the screening tools developed will allow researchers to quickly assess genetic diversity in redwood forests to inform plans that restore the health and resilience of these forests as they face environmental stressors such as climate change.

Learn more in the inaugural edition of Redwoods magazine.

With your annual membership of $19 or more, you’ll receive a year’s subscription to Redwoods, the new magazine of Save the Redwoods League.

Conifer-Themed Dinner Party Supports Education

on

Thanks to all who joined us last night for a conifer-inspired dinner party at Lazy Bear restaurant in San Francisco. The event, generously supported by Dodge & Cox, benefited the League’s education programs, which bring more than 7,000 young people to the redwood forest annually.

Thank You for Supporting Giant Sequoia National Monument

on

The League thanks our community for responding to our call for public comments on what Giant Sequoia National Monument means to them. Comments from League supporters were counted recently among a record-breaking 2.8 million after the Trump administration ordered a review that threatens protections for 27 incredible places, including Giant Sequoia. The fate of Giant Sequoia is still unknown.

Read about the public responses and our commitment to the monument.
